any of these confirmations for president-elect trump or accept these people and for them put marco rubio aside for just a brief moment, but for everybody else, what they have is some important clarity, which is to say that rex tillerson, pompeo, and mattis are all willing to take their own firm stance where their own reputation where the rubber meets the road about how they feel about aggression at the border, you know, and inside of ukraine, about the iran nuclear deal, about any return to anything akin to waterboarding. they have all drawn their lines in the sand. if someone has to be confirmed in any event to be the secretary of state, to be the defense secretary, to be the cia chief, these performances this week, by and large, are giving republicans and even some democrats a pretty good degree of confidence. the question is mike flynn, i think, in that role as national security advisor, and how strong his word and his chain of command to donald trump will be vee visa vi some of these. >> have the idea that you have someone so influential steps away from the oval office that isn

doctor about cialis. trish: all right. marco rubio, former trump rival. remember, the guy he hick named "little marco," he was taking aim at rex tillerson in the hearings. watch this. >> i asked you about whether vladimir putin was a war criminal, something that you declined to label him as. i asked about china, whether they were one of the worst human rights violenters in the world which, again, you didn't want to compare them to other countries. i asked about the killing in the philippines, about saudi arabiaing with a human rights -- saudi arabia being a human rights violater. and it's not because i was trying to get you involved in international name calling, but for the sake of it. but because in order to have moral clarity, we need clarity. for those 1400 people in jail in china, those dissidents in cuba, the girls that want to drive and go to school, they look to the united states. they look to us. and often to the secretary of state. trish: all right. you know, it actually got even worse. he went on to say, basically, would you use force against china to defend japan? he w

tillerson hearing, i want to talk about that. i thought marco rubio was horrible in that confirmation hearing. he was absolutely horrible. the reason why he was so bad in that hearing was because he basically asked a guy who is supposed to be the top diplomat of the united states, at a confirmation hearing, he is asking him without him having all of the information, he is asking him to label people were criminals, murderers. that is just crazy. how is he going to have any room to negotiate, and a room to do anything if you are calling half the people you have to deal with on a diplomatic level murderers or more criminals. -- war criminals. i agree with rand paul, some people like john mccain, marco rubio, all they want to do is ave confrontation and war. you cannot disparage all of these world leaders before he even gets confirmed. that would not make any sense. host: we will get to all of those topics this morning. matt is up next, emerson, new jersey, the line for independents. caller: i would like to say that the president-elect trump handled himself professionally. sp
